The Orchestra Pit The Orchestra Pit

July 2013


Mark Braby, Shaun Hendry and Jude Cowan Montague present the latest in an ongoing series of genuinely alternative after-office live entertainments. Admission is free to members (show your membership card) otherwise sign in for membership. Donations, to the performers, will be sought.

Friday 26th July

Those who appeared (in no particular order):

Greanvine - Diana Collier and Steven Collins, both formerly of folk collective The Owl Service. Unique interpreters of songs, the duo can be heard tackling tunes by the likes of Baby Dee and Low alongside traditional ballads, Sacred Harp songs, and their own original material, all arranged for guitar, drones and vocals.

Keshco - those crazy psychedelic synth-folk funksters are scaling down to a twopiece for this month, stepping in at the last minute into the Scaledown-breach with their fabulously oddball pop.

Jude Cowan Montague - Jude will emerge from her usual spot singing about the news to experiment upon you with new songs about people of London - are you one of them/us? It's a little bit me ... it's a little bit you ... too.

Lil' Lost Lou - another late addition to the bill of fare (real performers thrive on short notice invitations!!!)... Yee Haw! She sings songs of being lost in East London and out there. She's supported Wanda Jackson and played on many a country and rock 'n' roll stage - shades of Elvis and the urban wilds.

Roshi Featuring Pars Radio - Returning to scaledown to promote her latest critically acclaimed album,Three Almonds and a Walnut, Roshi will not fail in mesmerising the audience with her ethereal voice and exotic sounds.

ruM - Comprising the talents of Paul Taylor on trombone, washboard and voice and Mike Walter on soprano saxophone and melodeon, he duo return to scaledown armed with new and challenging improvisational ideas. Enjoy!
